DHL Express Orders More New Boeing 777F Aircraft
DHL Express, the world-leading express service provider, has placed an order for six additional Boeing 777 Freighters. The order was announced on Tuesday with Boeing.
The purchase takes DHL Express' order book total to 28 777 Freighters since it placed its first direct order in 2018 for today's largest and most capable twin-engine freighter.
The 777 Freighter improves fuel efficiency and reduces CO2 emissions by 17% compared to legacy airplanes. DHL Express has taken delivery of 15 777 Freighters to date.
"DHL Express' continued confidence in the 777 Freighter is testament to the airplane's outstanding capabilities in supporting global cargo demand," said Ihssane Mounir, Boeing's senior vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing. "The 777 Freighter's unmatched operating efficiency is enabling DHL to meet its sustainability commitments by reducing carbon emissions and contributing to its overall goal of net zero emissions by 2050."
The 777 Freighter is Boeing's best-selling freighter of all time. Customers from around the world have ordered more than 300 777 Freighters since the program began in 2005.
